Event Details

Imagine you are walking to park on a Winter morning…you hear the birds chirping in the trees, the rumble of passing traffic and the sudden ring of a bike bell. You see a friend, and greet them with a wave, and you laugh as you watch them play with their new puppy. The air around you feels cold on your face, but your hands feel warm inside your soft gloves. As you get close to the park gates you start to smell cooking and your mouth starts to water, looking forward to a tasty meal at lunchtime.

Every day we are surrounded by information that our senses process. Our eyes, ears, noses, mouths and hands send information to our brain to help us understand and perceive the world around us.

Session 6 – Sixth Sense

Explore some of the less well known senses that we experience. How do we balance, and what can disrupt our sense of balance? Why is our sense of temperature useful? How does our brain sense pain? Find out more as we delve a little deeper into the extraordinary world of human senses.



This session forms part of our special programme, just for home educated young learners, with weekly sessions of hands-on activities.

The sessions will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and each week will be based on a different curriculum topic. We will also have some free exploration time on a set of COVID-safe exhibits.

The programme will begin from week commencing on Friday 7th January, starting at 2.30pm and will run for 1 hour and 45 minutes. The programme will consist of 6 sessions.

Places booked would be fully refundable, should we be required to close down again due to the on-going COVID pandemic.
